The foUovring extracts from the parish registers of Tring (which I 
have recently examined by the kind permission of the Rev. S. AV. 
TidsweU, the present vicar) will serve a double purpose. A small 
printer's error and an omission in the matter of dates in tlie extracts 
given in Mr. AA^'aters' memorable pamphlet on the AVashington 
ancestry, are hereby set right, and I am enabled to make a suggestion 
as to the family of which Amphillis was a member.

1635. May 26. Ann Dagiiall widdo. 
1637. Apr. 25. Ann tlie wif of Andrw Knowling. 

On page 14 of the above-mentioned pamphlet Mr. Waters sets out a 
grant of the tuition of the two daughters of John and 8usan Billing, 
to John Dagnall of Grove, tlie husband of Elizabetli Dagnall, she 
being ' matertera dictarum filiarum.' 

Susan Billing and Eliz. Dagnall, therefore, were sisters, and I think 
I am justified in assuming them to be the Susan Bovdou and Elizabeth 
Bovdon named in the above register extracts. Andrew Knowling, in 
his will, calls Susan Billing his daughter-in-law. He also calls 
Amphillis AYashiugton his daughter-in-law, and I therefore venture to 
suggest that Ann, the wife of Andrew Knowling, who was buried in 

1637, had been previously married to Boudon or Bowdon, and 

that Amphillis was one of her daughters by that mai-riage.

Searches into ihe Histoey of the Gillman or Oilman Family. Jti/ Alex. W. 
Gillman. London : Eliwi Hlock. 

A portion of tliis work entitkJ Thv Gillmniis of Iliyhyulc and .S'lmiul Tai/lor 
Coleridge, has been published separately, and received nuiiiy favourable reviews'. 
The complete -norii, now in our hand-*, proves to bo all that lover.s of family 
histories could de>ire. Mr. Gillman is entitled, in no small measure, to the 
gratitude of all who bear his name fur the exhaustive way in Avhich he has treated 
his subject. The chapter relating to the GilniHus of 8t. Albans will be of 
especial interest to Hertfordshire genealogists, and enables us to put an end to 
the confusion which has hitherto existed betwixt the Gilmaus and a family of 
Gilmett resident in St. Albans about the same period. The latter family produced 
two Mayors of the town, and there are entries in the parish registers undoubtedly 
relating to them, in which the superior social position of the Gilinau family 
probably caused the scribe to erroneously insert the surname of Gilman. 

All -well-known sources of genealogical information appear to have been drawn 
from in the compilation of this work, and handsomely bound, beautifully printed, 
and profusely illustrated, it will rank as one of the most valuable contributions 
to genealogical literature ever published. The edition is limited to 300 copies, 
at 25s. 

A H18TOBY OF THE Putnam Family in England and America. By Ebcn Putnam. 
Salem \_Mass.'] ; The Knickerbocker Press, Xeiu York. 

Our American cousins are far ahead of us in genealogical enterprise, and the 
number of family histories compiled by them during the last few years is legion. 
What is more important, they are printed and pnbli.shed so that all interested may, 
at small cost, see what has been done. Large collections of genealogical matter 
are constantly being made in England, but their usual fate is to remain in a 
manuscript form inaccessible to all but a favoured few, and any stranger wishing 
to study the genealogy has to work out the whole thing afresh. 

In the introductory portion of the above history which now lies before us, 
Mr. Putnam has put together in a concise form a large mass of material — the result 
of careful investigation — and ha^ traced, so far as he was able, the various families 
of his name resident in England, commencing, of course, with the ori'nnal stock 
who derived their surname from Puttenham in Herts. The actual home of the 
John Putnam, who founded the American branch, was at Wingrave, co. Bucks, 
into which county the family spread at a very early date.

[In volume I of this luugazitic at page 22o, was priuteil a copy of 
thts subsidy, taken from a lioU in tlie Public llocord ()ilL<r, to wliich 
the offtciarrefeivuee is 1'21/IG4 & owing to the mutilated condition of 
the original, a good many gaps cS: considerable confusion appeariMl in 
the lists of names. Tlie Editor has recently discovi'red tliat a duplicate 
roll exists, the reference to which is 121/lGG and altliough the official 
calendar describes it as ' imperfect ' & it is defective in many places, it 
contains many more names than the other & the arraiigemi-nt is 
correct. By collating one copy with the otlier a fairly comidete roll is 
obtained & the confusion in the one already printed, owing U< tlie 
various parchment membranes having been sewn together in a wrong 
order, disappears. In the following pages the text of the second roll
